Rum Sweet Rolls

 Rum Sweet Rolls
These plump tender rolls are a sweet choice for breakfast or a coffee break...and easy to make, too! I bake batches for the holidays and other special gatherings. Sometimes I replace the packaged mix with my recipe for homemade yeast rolls.
12 ServingsPrep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 25 min. + cooling


  • 1 package (16 ounces) hot roll mix
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons water
  • 3-1/2 teaspoons rum extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • a lightly floured surface; gently knead for 5 minutes. Cover with a
  • bowl and let rest for 5 minutes. Roll into a 12-in. x 10-in.
  • rectangle. Spread with butter to within 1/2 in. of edges.
